Corrected entry: When the Munro's pick up Cassie's friend Gretchen, the crew can be seen reflected in the side of the car. They are also visible when they drop her off. (00:03:20)

Correction: The crew cannot be seen.

Corrected entry: When the two families are eating together outside around the patio table, Cassie is told that she is in fact eating deer organs, so she runs into the RV with a mouthful of the food and it is all around her lips. As soon as she get to the bathroom to discover all of the skinned deers hanging inside, her mouth is suddenly empty and her lips are suddenly all clean, so that she can scream.

Correction: It's not inconceivable that while she is running to the bathroom, she spits out the organs, and wipes her lips, then just needs to go to the bathroom to rinse her mouth out.

Corrected entry: When the Munro family leaves the station, we see a wideshot and the RV had the diesel pump still attached in the pump hole. In subsquent shots the pump has vanished.

Correction: The RV is seen as it takes off from the gas station, with the broken gas pump attached. The RV is not seen again until after the Gornickes pick up the laptop stealing folk singer, and the gas pump is indeed still hanging out of the gas tank fill spout.

Corrected entry: When the family is sitting outside in the rain and decide to go to the bar, they go to the top of the mountain and begin sliding down feet first, one by one. However, they are seen at the bottom sliding head first.

Correction: It's a very long slope to slide down, and there is a gap in time when the camera shifts from the top to bottom. There would have been enough time for them to have flipped around on the descent.

Corrected entry: When the RV is stuck on top of the mountain, with all wheels off the ground, a close-up of the instrument panel is shown. The tachometer (RPMs) goes up as Robin Williams' character tries to free it, but the speedometer doesn't move at all. The speedometer would continue to function, as long as the RV was in gear, even if both rear wheels were spinning freely in the air.

Correction: Not necessarily. In many vehicles, the speedometer is operated by a non-drive wheel. I had an older car that had the speedometer cable attached to the front wheel. Even with the rear wheels spinning, the speedometer didn't work if the car was not moving.

Continuity mistake: When bike riding Bob grabs hold of the Gornicke bus ladder, his hands grip different rungs between multiple shots. (01:22:25)
